Didn't they do this in order to not have to pay taxes & rent? Also I believe they were losing sponsors...

The Scout's discrimination has been putting the organization at odds with a number of municipal governments and corporate sponsors for the better part of the last decade and when it came to the boys they were supposed to be serving, increasingly hard to justify. The organization is running into expected resistance from various churches, which sponsor a lot of their local troops and who, in a what Jesus would do if he were having a childish fit moment, have kicked the program out, but if the organization as a whole was going to survive, this was the first step they had to make.

How any parent could keep their son in the BSA after hearing they are allowing homosexuals in is beyond me.

Let the fagg@ts have it.

How any parent could keep their son in the BSA now that they are allowing queers in is beyond me.

Let the queers have it. Another great institution they have taken over and destroyed.

They're now talking about having all these private showers and quarters for those Scouts who request them. That's hilarious, because of course any gay Scouts were already in these places before the bigot Boy Scouts partially revoked their bigoted ban.

So it is really about the homophobes' awareness of who is gay, not about "gay people in the shower." In other words, it's about fundie and homophobe denial and discomfort with acknowledging any reality.

The new policy, by barring openly glbt Scout leaders, maintains a veil of defamation, and allows the current leaders to more easily identify and target any openly gay Scouts for pressure to be, in that repellent phrase, "morally straight."

Sick, "religious" freaks.

There's that closet case unreality I was just trying to express: The homosexual Scouts have always been there. The only change now is that some Scouts might identify themselves as such.

I agree the "religious" freaks should bolt and form their own jeesus youth brigades. This is the trend: Further and further marginalization of sexually sick bigots.

Boys that are sexually attracted to boys are the freaks.
Boys that don't won't to be turning them on are the normal ones.
Gay boys showering and sleeping with normal boys is like normal boys showering and sleeping with girls.Neither should be allowed.

Exactly. This is why allowing gay men to be scout leaders is INSANE! Would you allow women to be boy scout leaders and allow them to shower with boys? No different than allowing gay men in. This is why I don't shower at the gym after working out. Too many queers in there checking me out.

"boys" aren't likely to be turned on yet.

Teenage boys can be turned on by a lug wrench or nothing at all.

Get real.

So Chad/Pierre/Vernon, must be a slow day over at the cafe? Do you think you made a valid point by changing your name/location? Don't be all angry at the boy scouts because your cyber party last night was a snore. Grandpa Dizzo must have tired of you.

Your obsession with naked boys is disturbing.

Good lord anytime any of you mention Boy Scouts now it's always about naked little kids.

That would be the gay obsession with naked boys, they are the people that want into the boy scouts. They should start their own club.

But not by another boy, unless they have a disorder. I'm being real, you know it, you don't like it.

Obviously you were never a boy scout
.
Taking baths at boy scout meetings is not what boy scouts do
.
Scouting is all about learning how to survive without such luxuries as plumbing and electricity

We don't join gyms to take showers like russians do

Boy Scouts are required to wear seriously tacky and humiliating Boy Scout Uniforms that were stylish in 1927

We would be better off naked; but that is not allowed

Yes; Vernon

It was a daunting challenge
.
They wouldn't let us take over until the clock struck midnight
.
It is now noon and the entire Boy Scouts of America is rubbish in less than 12 hours
.
We deserve a merit badge
